April, 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. To observe the occasion Trav S.D. will be presenting sections of his Civil War circus comedy A House Divided, written as companion piece to Kitsch (presented at Theater for the New City in 2009.) This unique variety presentation features clown bits, a “magic lantern slide show”, live music, farcical scenes from the play and circus and sideshow turns. In the cast:

Lewd Alfred Douglas as Castor and Pollux, two dashing and romantical young lads!

Jennifer Harder, blowing her bugle and essaying multiple parts!
Justin R. G. Holcomb as Major Anderson
